GARLIC MASHED POTATOES
We usually have pretty big eaters in this house, so I tend to always make extra potatoes of any kind. These are great, fried up for breakfast the next morning too!
5 - 6 large potatoes peeled, and cut into quarters (Yukon gold's taste great)
2 finely minced garlic cloves
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup plain yogurt
2 finely diced scallions
salt and pepper to taste
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Begin by melting the butter and garlic in a pot on low heat - just till melted and the garlic is fragrant, then remove from heat.
Bring the potatoes to a boil, when cooked drain well. Add the melted butter and garlic to the potatoes, and mash well. Add in the scallions, yogurt, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Continue to mash, adding in chicken stock a bit at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Fluffy, tasty, mashed potatoes go with just about anything....they are great on top of shepherds pie too!
